Today gamers will begin to receive Double XP in Call of Duty: Ghosts for multiple platforms as a celebration of the holidays. In addition to this, there’s also now a new playlist called Heavy Duty which adds a chance for more health to the multiplayer component of Ghosts which has been criticized for being one of the least enjoyable MP’s in the entire series (mainly due to poorly designed maps). You can get double experience from December 27, 2013 until the morning of December 30, 2013 – so get killing before it runs out.
